"Their was a thing on their older pretty green listing, that said to contact them to get replacement pretty green bottles, however, I phoned them and they said No to me in no uncertain terms, quite rudely in fact. So as you said it is doubtful you…"

"problem is they dont do the "pretty green" colours in standard bottles aka you can only get them if you buy the whole lamp :-("

"I think blue and orange will be amazing together as they are opposite colors on the color wheel, there will be a real visual pop when that globe is flowing. I am passing on the Pretty Green edition but would definitely be interested in that bottle…"

"Its got to be the laziest special edition ever. Just a standard astro base and cap with a fancy logo on the bottle. A few new colourways? I dont think blue and orange go together, and the blue pink will be just like the astrobaby variant.  OK…"

Mathmos/ Pretty Green reboot (new colours)

I still maintain that the Pretty Green lamps are fairly underwhelming, as special editions go,  but on the plus side it does have a nice box and does bring some potentially interesting new colourways, while not being that much more expensive than the standard Astro. So.. what do you think? Anyone?See More

lampfancy replied to Peter Panussi's discussion new version of Mathmos' Telstar in matt black and copper
"Not 'feeling' this one either, the black finish - to me - just seems to cheapen it, as mentioned an all-copper variant would have been much nicer or perhaps copper body with chrome legs (or vice versa?) which would be a nice throwback to…"

lampfancy replied to MichaelN77's discussion MATHMOSmatician majoring in Fluidum 101 Needed
"In terms of the dark wax, pretty sure this is just a characteristic of the lamp, the translucent base leaks a lot of light and has the effect of making the wax look rather dim in comparison, which is more noticeable in darker colours like green, I…"

"How does the orange compare with the yellow? People seem to complain that the blue and red are too dark with poor visibility through the mirrored glass and, conversely, that the coating on the vase of the yellow variant is a bit too translucent -…"

lampfancy replied to steppo's discussion Mathmos Astro Metallic
"Yeah the lighter finish as you describe seems at odds the central concept of it resembling a solid metallic object when turned off, that and the omission of the logo is probably a deal breaker for me. Was looking forward to these as well... :-|"

"Glad to hear the quality is decent, wax looks almost 'opal' in the photograph, how does it look in daylight?"

lampfancy replied to steppo's discussion Mathmos Astro Metallic
"Is this a limited run I wonder? Sort of tempted, but reluctant to commit without seeing  how they look in actuality. The renders make it look like it has more of a green hue."
